GAMES INCLUDED:

Glove World 500
A fun, fast paced racing game that helps build your typing speed. The object of the game is to stay ahead of Squidward by typing as quickly and as correctly as you can. To play Glove World 500, type each character shown on Boaty's dashboard as quickly as possible. Each time you make an error, seaweed splats on your windshield. If too much seaweed splats on your windshield, the game ends.

A Star is Born
This game builds your accuracy skills. The object of the game is to dress Patrick up in elaborate costumes by typing the words found on his house. Type three words to dress Patrick in one piece of clothing. Typing two or three words of the same color will dress Patrick up in a piece of clothing matching the outfit indicated by the colored rocks in the bottom left corner of the screen. Patrick will get a random piece of clothing if you type three different colored words. The piece chosen will be one of the three different styles that you typed. Patrick needs five pieces of clothing to be fully dressed. If you make an error, the game will not advance until you type the correct letter. Each word begins with a different letter. For example, if the word "Game" appears, no other on-screen word begins with the letter "G." Once you type the first letter of a word, you need to complete that word before starting another one. You may not backspace. The timer is located in the bottom right of the screen. The time given depends on the level and lesson you are currently on. Winning the game depends on quick and accurate typing. Patrick appears on-screen after you finish dressing him up. You lose the game if you type too slowly and your time runs out.

Doh Ray Me
SpongeBob enjoys the occasional undersea melody – in the key of sea, of course. In this activity, you can choose a melody from SpongeBob's jukebox, and then 'play' that melody by typing letters that appear as bubbles on your keyboard. If you type the keys correctly, you will hear a song from your favorite Bikini Bottom musician: Squidward, Patrick Star, Sandy Cheeks or Mr. Krabs.

Snail's Pace Race
It's the Bikini Bottom Stakes snail race, and Gary is up against his archrival, the paint-drying-quick Slime Biscuit. The race takes place on the ocean floor in Bikini Bottom. It is designed to improve your speed and accuracy. The faster and more correctly you type, the faster Gary goes. Stay ahead of Slime Biscuit to win the game. If your time runs out and Slime Biscuit reaches the end line before Gary, or you make too many mistakes, Slime Biscuit wins.

Senseless Patrick
In a freak domestic accident involving a cotton swab, an inflatable easy chair, and a violent sneeze, Patrick has lost all five of his seldom-used senses. In a gallant attempt to save his unfortunate friend, SpongeBob has miniaturized himself (using Mermaidman's mesmeric belt), and has entered Patrick's head -- and he intends to knock some sense back into his friend! You can help SpongeBob move through a maze inside Patrick's head. Type any letter next to SpongeBob to move through the maze. Avoid the nasty Antibodies, or dispel them by stopping on a ‘thought tangle'. Once you complete the Thought Tangle, all of the Antibodies are expelled from Patrick's head. Watch out! These pesky guys will come back and try to kick SpongeBob out, too. You must collect all of Patrick's five lost senses to restore them to some measure of usefulness.
